Keeping it real by showing you my mess and my obstacles. Starting at 8pm, I went through five gallons of milk/cream to make butter, mozzarella and yogurt, plus a frittata, a veggie dish and did up 3 pumpkins and a squash (still working through our summer pumpkin/squash abundance). Phew. And then clean up time and my cats decide to 'help'. Thankful for my husband stepping in and doing up the last few dishes while I did night time chores. The good news? I'm now ahead of schedule and hopefully will get some stitching time in tomorrow night. I have some new patterns I'm itching to stitch! I may be crazy, but I am also the eternal optimist, challenged by my feline 'helpers'.
